    • Did you send the note giving them the extension of time? When does the extension expire/date for issue of claim? I see that this thread started on 25 October. I have to say that when it started I thought it was going to be a quick fix and hadn't bargained for virgin's ineptitude which has certainly made it a lot more interesting but I'm hoping that March is going to be the month that it will finally all get sorted out. Surely someone responsible within Virgin has got to start taking a look and understanding the extraordinary mess that they have built for themselves and want to sort it out.  
    • Dispute with Vodafone and get copy invoices last invoice 2016 no balance on old number I have invoices upto nov16 showing no balance brought forward just before upgraded.   you say above you have all the bills that state a zero balance up until nov2016 are they in the SAR return too,? and all the ones after nov 2016?   the account number in the poc is this the same number as on those bills you have? and the number on the pages of the comms log you uploaded? as the comms log appears to show payments were being made right through the period you say the bills you have all show £0? then being transferred to other invoice numbers  , do these invoice numbers the payments were transferred too match the invoice numbers show £0 balance you have?          
    • no go back and read my guide earlier CAREFULLY...
    • Oh ok.   I thought I would need to write some sort of defence when I acknowledge the claim on the mcol website.
    • woe SLOWDOWN>   your defence is weeks away. (day 33) no there are no templates as each claim is unique. however, if you use our search top right. for say claimform card you'll see numerous versions people have adapted based upon our std holding/no paperwork defence , one of which, might well be suitable.   get CCA/CPR requests running monday and get AOS done now on mcol, you've already lost 10 of your 19days to do AOS   then get reading up as i detailed above the more you read here the stronger we become   dx

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Islington Council 2019 PCN Code 38JL - Keep left - Englefield Road - Now Equita Bailiffs saying Warrant of Control has been issued - is this out of time?


Recommended Posts

Date of offence:  Summer 2019.

Offence Code:   38JL

 

A council's debt collection agent just sent me a letter saying a formal Warrant of Control has been issued.  (no warrant information or number).     Is this correct? Can they do this after a year?

Date Notice issued: 26th August. (2nd Class Mail)  says a Warrant of Control has been "issued against you".

Date of PCN: 9th July last year! 

 

The last line of the letter states: "contact us upon receipt of this notice of intention."

Debt firm: Equita

Where:  Englefield Road [Zone T]   https://goo.gl/maps/sv7mjXtE6AEvR5bs9

CCTV: Yes

Offence Code: 38JL  - Failing to comply with a sign indicating that vehicular traffic must pass to the specified side of the sign.

that is a notoriously controversial sign

 

https://uk.search.yahoo.com/search?p=Englefield+Road+keep+left+PCN&fr=yfp-search-sb

 

did you receive the original PCN?

 

and Equita are bailiffs, they are not mere powerless debt collector agency -  you must act to avoid further costs being added.

no pcn was ever received.

 

Which is why the letter they sent mid August was a shock and a half. 

 

 I decided to put in a GDPR request to get all data about this in my hands.

While awaiting this to come through, i got hit with this new "Enforcement" letter  which only just arrived yesterday.

what ever made you go GDPR sar route?

 

this is why it is SO important not to play secret squirrel as it leads you up the wrong path and you follow faulty advice.

so 8hrs later you get the correct advice:

 

you did not receive the original PCN so everything inc enforcement should be reset:

follow:

Are you the Registered Keeper of the vehicle with the DVLA, and is your address correct on the vehicle's V5C?

 

Don't just assume it's correct, dig out your copy of the V5C and make sure the address is correct.  (If eg you've moved house recently, people often remember to change the address on their driving licence, but forget to do their V5C).

 

If the address is wrong, that would explain why you have not received any documentation relating to this.  And if the address is wrong because you should have changed it with DVLA but you didn't, it makes it more difficult to extricate yourself from this.  (EDIT:  dx100uk is correct that it is possible to get this re-set by the Traffic Court, but if you contributed to the reason why you didn't receive the PCN by not updating address at DVLA, it might be more difficult)

 

So is your V5C address recorded correctly?

 

(And if it is now recorded correctly, is it at all possible that you may have changed address at around the time of the offence last summer and that the DVLA had a previous address when Islington requested RK details from DVLA?)

the very fact that the above might be the very reason why they might not have received the PCN is actually a good point for the OP,

it's proof they never got the PCN and the LA must allow the appeal as there is thus evidence it was sent to the wrong address.

 

there is nothing in the legislation that says 'tough luck' you didn't update your V5C cough up!!

 

edit: glad to see you've not moved..so get on with the PE2/3 now.

If the V5 details are correct (and were when the PCN would have been sent out) it's interesting that the first you know of this is a letter from the bailiffs a year later.

 

That must mean that you haven't recevied about four documents.  (A PCN, an Enforcement Order, a Charge Certificate and an Order for Recovery?  I'm never quite sure what the process is with moving traffic offences and how many different stages and documents there are).  I assume the bailiff's letter is correctly addressed?

 

Be funny if DVLA gave out wrong address...

Can’t hurt to give the elected head of Islington council a ring also as well as doing an Out of time request .


My friend did likewise and they Instructed  the bailiffs to release the clamp off his car, immediately and put the PCN back to its original charge.

 

Not just an anecdote I advised him to do this last week.
